The new 'Kayla' has been posted. It only took re-writing the first part of the story five times, many months, and my entire vacation from work. I've been writing for so long, it's become all too easy to write really damned long stories. Roughly 50,500 words, and it's only half the actual story as a whole, because I've been forced to split it into two parts! I've either done something good, or everyone is going to be upset with me, doing such a long lead-up and character delving tale.
In other news - say, you remember my blood pressure meds? The Lisinopril? My 'doc and I have come to ditch them in favor of a different drug called Carvedilol; otherwise known in most places as Coreg. It's an alpha, beta one, and beta two blocker. I was nervous at first, considering I was going from an ACE inhibitor to an all-round blocker, but I have had some fine results with the med so far, now that I am used to it. Unlike Lisinopril, it can even drop my heart rate! So now I can be active normally, rate around 100, and have a resting rate in the 60's. It's been nice.
